Bus, Bike, Walk to the Public Market

Come and experience one of Rochester's most popular institutions, the City of Rochester Public Market! Avoid Saturday parking and traffic challenges by taking our shuttle and/or trolley, riding the bus, riding your bike, or walking!

By Bus

Rochester Regional Transit Service (RTS) routes serve the Public Market District. Check out their online trip planner (note: the Market's address is 280 N. Union Street, 14609)

Bus schedules are also available at the Market Office.

You can also get information about bus service by calling the RTS customer service line at (585) 288-1700.

NOTE: The Market operates its own internal transit system in the form of a trolley, that will--for free!--deliver you and your weighty Market purchases back to your vehicles in the surrounding City-owned lots.  Look for the tractor and trolley trailer circulating around the Market grounds; there are several pick up points.  

By Bicycle

Enjoy the best possible parking at the Market by riding your bike! Bike racks are on the back side of the Market Office (the two-story brick house at the center of the grounds), and near the Union Street and Railroad Street archway entries. Several covered bike racks are part of the bike parking near the Union Street entry. Enjoy easier and safer access to the Market via the rail-to-trail pedestrian/bike/trolley bridge over Union Street!

Bike Benefits Incentive/Reward Program

Market cyclists can now join our bikeprogramsticker, a new incentive/reward program! Every week that registered participants ride their bikes to the Market, they can enter to win $25 in Market Gift Tokens!  There's no limit to the number of times you could win--as long as you keep biking to the Market, you'll be eligible to win every week you ride!

Note: Cycling is getting better and better in the city! Check out www.cityofrochester.gov/bikerochester.


The City maintains an excellent sidewalk system in all areas around and leading into the Market, and it's going to get even better when the East Main Arts and Market District Plan is actualized!
